How to Destress!



When it comes to the world of business, well, business comes from the word busy for a reason. Business professionals tend to be expected to maintain a serious demeanor at all times, and that’s because when money changes hands, your business partners will need to know you can handle the responsibilities of handling someone else’s money. However, this can have a detrimental effect on these hard working men and women, and so we need to take the steps necessary steps to maintain good morale and, more importantly, good mental health. Even from an employment standpoint, bad morale is bad for business, so there’s no excuse for leaving employees high and dry in this way. However, it does fall on us as individuals to maintain morale for ourselves. Here are some tips to help you do just that.

First and foremost, never underestimate the restorative power of a nice hot bath. The warm water of a bath is good for relaxing tense and sore muscles, and the quiet is good for rejuvenating your mind. So, the bath is a package deal that has numerous benefits. However, this may not be for you. Fear not, there are alternatives. For example, you can take a nap, instead. The nap is a double edged sword, so be careful here. Interuppting REM sleep, the deepest phase of sleep wherein dreams occur, can actually leave you feeling more tired and sore, as well as disoriented and possibly even afraid, if only momentarily. To avoid this, simply time out your naps to be half an hour or less, or around an hour and 45 minutes. A successful nap can help you recharge your batteries to more fully enjoy your evening before you have to go back to the grind the following day.

However, this advice so far has been for introverts like myself. Extroverts, on the other hand, have a totally different idea of what relaxation looks like, so let’s address that, shall we? For starters, extroverts like socializing, so we can work with that. For example, one wy to unwind after work would be to get dolled up in your new Lord and Taylor outfit, grab your friends, and go out for a night on the town. This could include dinner and/or a movie, but what matters most is spending time with friends, as that, not isolation, helps extroverts relax. Even going to a night club can work wonders, so long as you don’t get drunk and come to work the next day with a hangover.
